When you stand up and swear to protect against the enemies of the United States of America, foreign and domestic....you better mean it. If you join, you WILL deploy. If you are Infantry or Artillery, you will go to the front lines and you will see things that will stay with you for the rest of your life. In truth, it doesn't really matter what position you hold, because it doesn't take deploying to see things that will haunt you forever. Things can happen at home, like suicide, someone you consider a brother or sister losing their minds and being hospitalized. The Army is not a job, it is a way of life. Either you adapt to it, or you fail. It's a choice you make daily to wake up and serve. It's a daily choice to possess Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage. Your life will not be yours, you will be government property. If you so much as get a sunburn, you could be discharged. If you decide to make the choice to lay your life down daily for your country, that is all that you will do. It will never be about you anymore. It will be about the brothers and sisters to your left, your right, before you and behind you. You have to not care if you live or die, and know that if you give your life for your brother or sister, that they in return would do the same for you. It's all about getting home, and making sure that your whole team makes it home to celebrate greatness and the lack of being defeated. As a Soldier you will learn that the words "Cant", "Quit", "won't" do not exist in your life. You will wake up every day knowing that you Can, you Will Not give up, and you absolutely WILL do as you are told. If you falter for one moment and rebut against leadership, you are placing not only yours, but all of your team's life in danger. When you train, you must consider it the real deal, so that when you're in the real deal and not at home training, you wont know the difference, it will just be normal. You have to know in your hear that this is all you want to do; serve, protect, and come home. If you are already afraid of deploying, (and you're only 16, so obviously you have not truly lived yet, and you have a lot of life left to do) this may not be for you.; Examine your fear, live a little and get a few things out of your system, and then make a conscious adult decision to Join without any influence other than your own mind and heart. Above all, make sure that your heart is completely ready to be selfless in all aspects of your life. Be humble, but be fierce, and you will be an excellent Soldier.
